Samyang Shows New Filter Holder for its Ultra Wide 14mm Lens
Korean optical manufacturer Samyang (better known in the U.S. as Rokinon) announced a new filter holder called SFH-14 designed specifically for the Samyang 14mm 1:2.8 ED AS IF UMC lens.
According to Samyang “SFH-14 has been designed to work specifically with the Samyang 14mm lens in standard and V-DSLR cine version. This solves the common problem of mounting the filters on a lens that does not have a filter thread because of specific optical construction. The holder is made of lightweight and durable ABS plastic. In order to eliminate internal reflections of light, its interior has been roughened and blackened in the process of flocking, giving it a velvety black color. The holder comes with double slideways to use one or two filters at the same time. Due to a rotatable construction of the holder, filters can be used both vertically and horizontally”. The filters themselves are made by Cokin (the Cokin 154 ND8, Cokin 121M ND4 and the Cokin 123S).
The Samyang 14mm 1:2.8 ED AS IF UMC lens (which we have tested in the past and found to be extremely sharp) currently sells for just under $360 (on B&H), the new Samyang SFH-14 Holder will cost around 32 Euros.
